Dongshan Monastery, first built in 1394, is a monastery of the Zen Buddhism in Southern China. It is situated south of Mount Longtou (dragon head) which in ancient time was variably called Jiufeng or Dongshan (East Mountain, probably because it is situated east of Dapeng Fortress).
A Ming dynasty scholar penned the poem “Dapeng Dongshan Monastery”. The scholar revisited Dongshan Monastery 20 years after his first visit. Seeing again the seemingly unchanged scenery, he lamented over his fleeting life. He loitered in the tranquility of the monastery, taking in the breath-taking view.
